No punches were thrown, no complaints were filed and no arrests were made. But there was plenty of yelling, which is apparently all there needs to be in order for pepper spray to come into play.
TMZ has obtained footage of what it says is Cleveland Browns safety T.J. Ward involved in an early-morning dustup outside a nightclub. Ward was reportedly leaving Greystone Manor in Hollywood around at around 2 a.m. Monday morning when the altercation took place.
Ward, who appears visibly upset in the video below, was restrained, as was a man he was arguing with. An LAPD spokesperson told TMZ that none of their officers were called to the scene, but the security on hand reportedly used pepper spray in order to disperse the large crowd.
Ward, 2010 second-round draft pick, has plenty on his plate already as he tries to help turn the Browns around.
